- Brian Carpenter of Rhinelander recently caught his biggest Northern Pike of the season at an area lake. Using a 5" sucker minnow for bait, Brian caught this 26-incher. He's keeping this beauty for a great meal.
St. Germain's Dan English took his wife and grandchildren out on Lake Carroll. Dan hauled in this HUGE 30 1/2 inch Northern. It weighed 5 pounds. He was using a shiner on a tip-up. This catch is also being prepared for an upcoming supper.
And 16-year old Katie Koppa is a student at Lakeland. While fishing with her boyfriend and dad at an area lake, she landed her first Northern Pike - 19 inches. I'm told this has been converted into Fish patties for the next big meal.
MERRILL - A Northwoods school pulled off a big surprise on Friday to honor a few veterans. After months of planning, students and staff at Kate Goodrich Elementary got to see the payoff of all their hard work.
"It was like kind of overwhelming," said Wolfgang Lenk.
Lenk, Todd Annis, and Randy Perry had no idea they would be the guests of honor.
"To see all these kids and knowing how hard they worked selling all this, and now your name comes up that you're one of the three recipients, it was awesome," said Annis.
RHINELANDER - A scoop of frozen custard goes down pretty well on a humid day like the Northwoods saw Friday. Rhinelander's Associated Bank made grabbing a scoop an easy way to help others.
Culver's set up a mobile custard stand outside the new bank building on the corner of Lincoln Street and Oneida Avenue from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Fifty cents from every $2.50 cup sold went to Associated Bank's Children's Miracle Network fund.
The bank is hoping to raise $500 through its fundraisers for CMN this month.
